We Sipped, We Shopped and We Supported!
On March 23, more than 50 local women attended our third annual “women-helping-women” vendor event, Spring into Success! We host this event to provide a space to support amazingly talented female entrepreneurs who do not have traditional storefronts to sell their products and services, including local artisans, authors, beauty and wellness professionals, and more. A huge thank-you to all who participated in the event, and our generous sponsors. Because of our support, we raised enough money to fully fund our student scholarships this year.

Corned Beef and Community
Each year, the West Morris Junior Women’s Club hosts a St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon for the Mendham Seniors Club. It’s a fun way to build community connections across generations, and both clubs really look forward to it. A hot meal was generously provided by the Chester Diner, and the WMJWC brought drinks, desserts, and decorations. Fun conversation was had, stories and photos of family were shared, and the song McNamara's Band (sung by Bing Crosby, of course) had everyone’s Irish eyes smiling.
How Do You Spell C-H-A-M-P-I-O-N?
Congratulations to the winners of our 27th Annual Spelling Bee! On January 21, more than 40 fourth and fifth grade students from Mendham and Chester schools gathered at West Morris Mendham High School. The room was buzzing with logophiles, and after nearly 20 rounds of spelling, the top three winners emerged: 1st place: Matthias L, 4th grade, Hilltop Elementary School 2nd place: Carolina G, 5th grade, Mendham Township Middle School 3rd place: Charlotte W, 5th grade, Mendham Township Middle School We almost ran out of words! The competition was fierce, and we were all blown away by the high levels of spelling talent and sportsmanship displayed by the students. Thank you to everyone who competed and all those who made the event possible, including our WMJWC volunteers and the amazing school staff, A/V crew, facilities team, and custodians at the high school. A huge thank you to the teachers who spent months preparing their students for the competition. Where would we ‘bee’ without you all?
